Oil up your noodle so you can slurp up some quiz time deliciousness. Dana heats up our brains (and meatballs) with "SWEDEN? OR NOT SWEDEN?" Chris has Christmas music on his mind while Karen made a quiz about entertainers solely for the purpose of embarrassing everybody else. Colin dips into wordplay for his "Word in a Word" quiz. And can you identify these famous quotes when slowed down to "witness protection" speed? And witness how we all completely lose it during Dana's segment about processed foods.

RUNTIME: 41 minutes 8 seconds

Just so you guys know, the "no right on red" thing is also valid for most other European countries. I'm from France and there's no turn on red there either :) I think the right on red is a North American thing...

It needs to be said, as this one pops up on misconception lists all the time: JFK did not call himself a jelly doughnut. Yes, there is a German pastry called the Berliner Pfannkuchen, but to express what Kennedy wanted to express, i.e. the figurative idea that he, and all Americans by extension, were figurative citizens of Berlin, the phrase he used was the best possible translation.

Moreover, in Berlin, the doughnuts are simply called 'Pfannkuchens', not Berliners.

@Felix Yes! Thanks for adding that tidbit; we didn't get to address it in the show. This is also one of my favorite misunderstandings (though in fairness I think Chris was joking). The comparison I like is that if someone had said in the aftermath of 9/11 "I am a New Yorker", you wouldn't think that person meant they were a magazine. Context counts!

Snopes tackles this one pretty well, with additional details about how that line came to be written:

One of the most important function in window 10 is the copy paste this is simple but most useful function .
